    Wait about 5 minutes after game start and you likely can park in most of the donor lots.

    Park up by towers or in the towers lot, walk down Ashmore to Gaskill and cut through the park, about a 5 minute walk.

    Re: best parking for coming late to UNI game

    I assume you don't have a parking pass, so you have 2 options.

    1. Park for free on a side street, which by gametime, you will be parking far away.
    2. Park in one of the public grass lots, be a lot closer, but you will have to pay.

    People that I know sometimes park in the MU parking ramp and walk to the stadium. $6-$7 to park for the game.

    Who has actually done this? It seems like it is possible, but I wouldn't want to make an assumption and get stuck by a zealous parking lot guard.

    Plus, I'd be missing the game, but that's just me.

    I park at the Towers all the time. No guard. (If you take the last parking spot before I get there I will be Poed. Ha ha I will be there long before the game starts.)

    MU might be the way to go or towers keep the ideas coming. clones win 34 -7

    They don't let people in there after the game has started do they?

    I've never heard of this. I know in my lot someone is at the entrance the entire game and even after the game. I've stayed for an hour after the game and so did the person keeping people out at the entrance.

    In the past, I have seen people coming in the lots between Hilton and JC. Perhaps they are not allowing that anymore. I know 10 years ago, I would get there at 115 for a 1 o'clock game and park right by the Olsen Building.

    Park at Buchanan Hall. Yeah you'll get a ticket but just write "Visitor" on the back and send it in.
